Is winmerge 2.x still being developed?
I'd like to add a feature. I never bother/remember to save 'projects', so
I'd like to add a 'Recent Comparisons' section under the File menu, below
Recent Projects. This would remember comparisons done with Open (the
Select Files or Folders dialog), drag-and-drop, and the Explorer
right-click option. It wouldn't remember file comparisons done from within
a folder compare. Am I missing some other ways comparisons can be
Probably the best way to do this is to make both Recent Projects and Recent
Comparison into options with an arrow on the right that pops out the
history when you mouseover it. So the file menu would look like this:
Recent Projects >
Recent Comparisons >
This should allow the number shortcuts to still work, I think (mouse-over
Recent Projects to reveal the list, press '1', and the top recent project
should load. same for recent comparisons).
My questions are..
Is it ok for me to add this? Or has this been suggested before and
Is this going to be harder than I think it will be? :D It doesn't seem too
complicated... just have to store two paths per item instead of one
Is this format ok for the recent comparison entries? :
1 C:\Path\...\filename1.txt <> C:\Path\...\filename2.txt
2 C:\Path\...\folder1 <> C:\Path\...\folder2
Or maybe the separator should be <--> or <==> or |
Should I do winmerge 3 instead? Maybe you already have this in wm3?
If you're ok with me adding this, I'll send a patch, as mentioned here:
